Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Rub the chicken pieces in a mixture of the paprika, salt and pepper.
  2. (I put plastic bags on my hands to stop the bits getting under my nails!) Gently heat the Olive Oil in a large flame-proof casserole dish and fry the garlic until it is lightly browned.
  3. Remove the garlic with a slotted spoon.
  4. Add the chicken pieces and gently fry until light brown on all sides.
  5. Return garlic to the dish, add the sherry, brandy and bay leaves.
  6. Bring to the boil and then cover and simmer for approx 45 mins until the chicken is tender.
